Pay CLOSE Attention!

This whole affair with the nomination process should be a huge eye opener for Liberals and a lot of Democrats. They need to pay close attention to who is voting against Roberts’ nomination, and if they happen to have working brains, realize that these Liberal lefty Senators who say they have the peoples best interest at heart are full of crap. Who in their right mind would stand there and agree with any Senator who says in not so many words that they agree wholeheartedly with judges making law from the bench that strips religious freedoms, allows the taking of peoples homes by the states, and murders unborn children? You have to be one sick individual to have even a passing thought that this is “progress” as it was called by some brain dead Liberal who wrote in my local paper. Roberts gave the correct answer to these Senators questions on how he would rule. He said that he would enforce the constitution, and base his decisions by what was in it, IE: He would not make law from the bench. This was the correct answer and the only one needed or required. Those who vote against Roberts should be voted OUT in their next election.

God Bless Their Souls and Mine

In rememberance of 9/11 I wish to do a small flashback. Actually, we all need to do a major flashback so we never forget what happened on that fateful day and more importantly, why. Back four years ago today it was, when murder came knocking, and thousands of innocent people were murdered in cold blood by a bunch of Islamic cowards. They can shove their religion and their Allah up their collective asses by the way. We all must remember that day and its events vividly, for if we forget, we are doomed to let them repeat themselves. I was in my office that day, and I recall the mouse to my PC was malfunctioning. I was on the way through the technical area where the Help Desk was, and the manager there said a small plane had crashed into the World Trade Center. I remember poking my head into his cubicle, and he had a live news movie of the north tower with a back hole in its side and the smoke billowing out. I instinctively said that I would not be suprised if it was the work of some Islamic terrorist jerk, and walked away. As I headed up to the front of the building to see the hardware guru, and obtain a new mouse, everything still seemed normal. I got the mouse and returned to my office and installed it on my PC. Not knowing what to do with the old one I walked it back up to the guru's office. By this time a crowd had gathered in the front conference room where a TV was located. The room was full of co-workers, and some of the women were already upset to the point of crying. We watched the news reports play as rumors were reported that there were possible other attacks in Washington at the Pentagon. Then we watched live as the second plane came into view and struck the south tower and exploded. The women screamed and cried "Oh my God". But God was not going to help us that day, and he should have. This confirmed my original comment and feelings on what was happening. It was a terrorist attack. I was pissed OFF! After a while I recall going back to my offiice and smashing the broken mouse on my desk as I swore at Islam. As a rule of thumb, I never did like foreigners, and had a particular distaste for these Islamic jackals. Now I know for sure I hated them, and they should be hated. I've always hated Polictical Correctness, Liberalisim, (I did not know what it was called back then.), and political rhetoric too. I'm a firm believer in getting the job done and getting it done right. I say just get the damn job done and stop with the bullcrap. I also always hated the local news. They have a habit of making a big damn deal out of absolutley nothing. Total non-events are blown way out of proportion just so they can hear themselves talk. They mislead people and bait them constantly. As a result I had stopped watching local TV news altogether. As a note, I had been a life long Democrat, although in looking back I found myself very opposed to Liberal thoughts and ideals, thank God. We were all released early from work on 9/11, and not many of us wasted any time leaving. Traffic was backed up horribly as everyone else had the same idea. On arriving home, I called a good friend of mine who was an ex-airforce man, and still lived close to the base as a reservist. I asked him if he was alright down there and he said yes, everything was cool. Good, so I hung up and started watching TV. I found myself getting irritated with the way regular local news was covering the disaster. The reporting was full of unsubstantiated speculation, and rhetoric. I kept thinking, Jesus Christ, just report what is happening and show us different pictures on a regular basis without repeating the same crap over and over again. I got tired of their crap quickly and started to channel surf. I came across Fox News Channel. I have to say it was a breath of fresh air. The reporting was down to earth, factual, not-sensationalized, professional, they told different stories about the event instead of repeating the same old crap over and over again, they had specialists come in and talk and give an educated opinion, the women reportes were very attractive, hot in fact, there was a distinct lack of political rhetoric and speculation, and they strived to show different films and pictures on a regular basis. I immediately liked this station and made it my only news source. It was a wise choice. Over the course of the last four years the events of that day have changed me forever. I discovered that there are people out there with the same morals and ideals as I have. There are people and news outlets out there that are truly interested in telling a truthful story thats balanced with both views. More importantly, I was awakened to the reality that every American should be acutely aware of what is happening in their country, what their elected officials are doing, and becoming active in every way possible to make sure things are done right. I've learned in the last four years that my feelings on Political Correctness and how wrong it is are correct, and that there are a lot of other people who feel the same way. I've learned about Liberalisim, and how its erroded the very fibre of this nation to its core with corruption and insanity. I've learned about special interest groups, whom I've never liked anyway, who have a specific agenda. I've learned the truth about how the Democrats have been taken over by the Liberal Left and corrupted with a sickness so vile that its seems that its uncureable. I learned so much about what my political party had done to undermine this country, and what they did to help make 9/11 a reality with their appeasement and Liberal bullcrap that I became so embarrassed that I switched parties. I am now proudly a Republican, and a conservative. I've learned how to fight Liberalisim, Policital Correctness, and special interest groups like the ACLU whos roots are wrought with communisim. I've learned to read through their lies and rhetoric, and wean out the facts. Sadly, I've seen how far too many people are still too gullable, or stuck in their ways to realize that they support the pathetic and corrupt left, and everything that is harmful to America. I've seen how they have for decades twisted our Constitution and the Bill of Rights into a joke and a laughing stock, making it a tool for their twisted agenda, and to further their sick cause(s). We are not out of the woods yet. In four years, we've seen more political infighting, rhetoric, political game playing, corruption, and fighting about whats right and whats wrong with this country than ever before. The Liberal Democrats keep moving left and taking the gullable with them. When will those people wake up? When will they relaize that Liberalisim and Political Correctness is what is causing and allowing our youth to shoot their classmates in cold blood, allowing crime to run pampant in our streets, allowing morals to be erroded farther and farther each day, and will allow events like 9/11 to repeate themselves. When are they going to realize that they must stand and fight, and do what ever it takes to eradicate the enimie instead of turning to appeasement, human rights feely do good crap, and the spinless protests of the meek and gutless? History has proven their tactics useless and ineffective countless times. You think they would have learned by now. But they have not learned. They continue on blindly like mindless idiots who cannot help themselves. I can only hope and pray for those souls who were lost that day four years ago today, that they are all in heaven, and that the souls of those murderers are burning in the lowest, hottest bowels of hell where they belong. I pray that those of us on the right, who have working brains, and who are slowly awakening to the dangers of Liberalisim and Political Correctness, and radical special intersts groups can put up a continuing fight and stop the spread of those social diseases. We must remain strong, and become active. We must not give up, or tire, for it is a long hard struggle. They have had 40+ years to slowly infiltrate, and corrupt this socitey, it may take just as long to eradicate them. If we fail in our duty as true patriots, and moral citizens of this country, then we are inviting another 9/11 to happen. I memory of those who were lost, we cannot let that happen. God bless us all.....

The Proof Is In The Pudding

This whole mess with this Katrina event is sickening. I'm so tired of hearing about how FEMA dropped the ball, and the Bush administration is the cause of this and the slow response. I've written previously on this subject, and I'm not going to rehash it all here. But many of the statements I made have been bourne out. For example it is now coming to light that the Red Cross was there and ready with food and supplies within hours of the storm hitting. They were refused entry by the LOCAL authorities. The same was true with many help organization such as the Salvation Army and United Way. But in reading today the many articles being written about this event, I came across this one that I am pasting below. It is an excellent article by a reporter who has figured out what the real problem(s) are, and I think he is right on the mark.

Story snippet:

It has taken four long days for state and federal officials to figure out how to deal with the disaster in New Orleans. I can't blame them, because it has also taken me four long days to figure out what is going on there. The reason is that the events there make no sense if you think that we are confronting a natural disaster. If this is just a natural disaster, the response for public officials is obvious: you bring in food, water, and doctors; you send transportation to evacuate refugees to temporary shelters; you send engineers to stop the flooding and rebuild the city's infrastructure. For journalists, natural disasters also have a familiar pattern: the heroism of ordinary people pulling together to survive; the hard work and dedication of doctors, nurses, and rescue workers; the steps being taken to clean up and rebuild. Public officials did not expect that the first thing they would have to do is to send thousands of armed troops in armored vehicle, as if they are suppressing an enemy insurgency. And journalists--myself included--did not expect that the story would not be about rain, wind, and flooding, but about rape, murder, and looting. But this is not a natural disaster. It is a man-made disaster. The man-made disaster is not an inadequate or incompetent response by federal relief agencies, and it was not directly caused by Hurricane Katrina. This is where just about every newspaper and television channel has gotten the story wrong. The man-made disaster we are now witnessing in New Orleans did not happen over the past four days. It happened over the past four decades. Hurricane Katrina merely exposed it to public view. The man-made disaster is the welfare state. For the past few days, I have found the news from New Orleans to be confusing. People were not behaving as you would expect them to behave in an emergency--indeed, they were not behaving as they have behaved in other emergencies. That is what has shocked so many people: they have been saying that this is not what we expect from America. In fact, it is not even what we expect from a Third World country. When confronted with a disaster, people usually rise to the occasion. They work together to rescue people in danger, and they spontaneously organize to keep order and solve problems. This is especially true in America. We are an enterprising people, used to relying on our own initiative rather than waiting around for the government to take care of us. I have seen this a hundred times, in small examples (a small town whose main traffic light had gone out, causing ordinary citizens to get out of their cars and serve as impromptu traffic cops, directing cars through the intersection) and large ones (the spontaneous response of New Yorkers to September 11). So what explains the chaos in New Orleans? To give you an idea of the magnitude of what is going on, here is a description from a Washington Times story: "Storm victims are raped and beaten; fights erupt with flying fists, knives and guns; fires are breaking out; corpses litter the streets; and police and rescue helicopters are repeatedly fired on. "The plea from Mayor C. Ray Nagin came even as National Guardsmen poured in to restore order and stop the looting, carjackings and gunfire.... "Last night, Gov. Kathleen Babineaux Blanco said 300 Iraq-hardened Arkansas National Guard members were inside New Orleans with shoot-to-kill orders. "'These troops are...under my orders to restore order in the streets,' she said. 'They have M-16s, and they are locked and loaded. These troops know how to shoot and kill and they are more than willing to do so if necessary and I expect they will.' " The reference to Iraq is eerie. The photo that accompanies this article shows National Guard troops, with rifles and armored vests, riding on an armored vehicle through trash-strewn streets lined by a rabble of squalid, listless people, one of whom appears to be yelling at them. It looks exactly like a scene from Sadr City in Baghdad. What explains bands of thugs using a natural disaster as an excuse for an orgy of looting, armed robbery, and rape? What causes unruly mobs to storm the very buses that have arrived to evacuate them, causing the drivers to drive away, frightened for their lives? What causes people to attack the doctors trying to treat patients at the Super Dome? Why are people responding to natural destruction by causing further destruction? Why are they attacking the people who are trying to help them? My wife, Sherri, figured it out first, and she figured it out on a sense-of-life level. While watching the coverage last night on Fox News Channel, she told me that she was getting a familiar feeling. She studied architecture at the Illinois Institute of Chicago, which is located in the South Side of Chicago just blocks away from the Robert Taylor Homes, one of the largest high-rise public housing projects in America. "The projects," as they were known, were infamous for uncontrollable crime and irremediable squalor. (They have since, mercifully, been demolished.) What Sherri was getting from last night's television coverage was a whiff of the sense of life of "the projects." Then the "crawl"--the informational phrases flashed at the bottom of the screen on most news channels--gave some vital statistics to confirm this sense: 75% of the residents of New Orleans had already evacuated before the hurricane, and of the 300,000 or so who remained, a large number were from the city's public housing projects. Jack Wakeland then gave me an additional, crucial fact: early reports from CNN and Fox indicated that the city had no plan for evacuating all of the prisoners in the city's jails--so they just let many of them loose. There is no doubt a significant overlap between these two populations--that is, a large number of people in the jails used to live in the housing projects, and vice versa. There were many decent, innocent people trapped in New Orleans when the deluge hit--but they were trapped alongside large numbers of people from two groups: criminals--and wards of the welfare state, people selected, over decades, for their lack of initiative and self-induced helplessness. The welfare wards were a mass of sheep--on whom the incompetent administration of New Orleans unleashed a pack of wolves. All of this is related, incidentally, to the apparent incompetence of the city government, which failed to plan for a total evacuation of the city, despite the knowledge that this might be necessary. But in a city corrupted by the welfare state, the job of city officials is to ensure the flow of handouts to welfare recipients and patronage to political supporters--not to ensure a lawful, orderly evacuation in case of emergency.

Greed, Stupidity, and Laziness

Today I've reached my fill with this Katrina crap. In todays news, although it was buried on page 12 in my local rag, the truth finally came out. The local governments let the people down. I've been saying this for days, and no one has been listening. Those officials should be made accountable for their failure(s). When Andrew came through and devastated south Florida in the mid 1990's, this should have been a big eye opener to any and all municipalities where a hurricane could even remotely strike. The government of areas such as New Orleans who would suffer a total contastrophe if even a moderate storm made a direct hit, should have immediately ordered engineering studies, gathered the information required to understand what needed to be done to prevent the events that happened this week, and effect the updates and repairs needed. This did not happen. I'm going to wager a guess that they are Liberals because the demographics dictate that this is most likely. With Liberals in place in government, the right things would not get done because they have their heads up their collective asses worrying too much about handouts for the poor, protecting the birdies, trees and animals, and other such nonsense. In short they squandered their opportunity in typical Liberal fashion and failed the citizens completely. This does not let the citizens off the hook. Already we have racists blacks trying to stir up the pot, and raise up the walls of denial. They are screaming that blacks are suffering, and blacks are the only ones being shown looting, and blacks are dying. This too is bullcrap. New Orleans is 85% black, the blacks are the ones doing the looting, the raping and the shooting!! The truth hurts racist, get over it and try directing your efforts to getting blacks to stop acting like animals, then you won't see the truth you don't like on TV as the truth would be different.

Blacks brought this onto themselves, and they deserve NO pity in that regard. As far as I'm concerned if any person acted like an animal, raping, shooting, pillaging, stealing etc they should be treated like an animal and shot on sight. As for the average citizen, I'm sick and tired of hearing the crying and whining crap. First of all, they had plenty of opportunity and time to get out of town, they failed to do so. They are not going to sit there and whine and cry about how poor they are, and how they have no means to go anywhere, or there was nowhere to go. If they wanted a boom box or booze, or ribs, or a Lexus, they'd be out there finding a damn way. Second, how lazy and stupid do you have to be to see a situation is going down hill, and sit there and wait around for someone else to help you? Get off your lazy black asses, get your belongings in a sack and start walking. I've never seen a more self declared lot of helpless dolts in my life. When you see your in a bad situation and its getting worse, move your fat ass and do something. As soon as those levies broke and I was rescued, if I needed to be rescued, I would have been walking as fast and as far as I could get from that situation. The only people who should need to be catered to as helpless are the elderly and infirm, for the rest there is NO excuse outside of pure laziness.

I also have an issue with a replacement talk show host who keeps being combative with people calling in and asking where the help is from other countries. This IS a legitimate question and one I'd also like the answer to. He keeps acting like this is a slam against Bush or current administration or something. No, its not, its a damn good question. Its times like this that you find out who your real friends are, and frankly I am suprised that we've not heard a word from England. Lastly, there is this other crap with the gas prices. This is the biggest crock I've seen since 1974. The affects of having a refinery or two out of service in the gulf region for a few weeks will not hit the supply of this country at all, and will have limited affect in their region for a few months. Yet the day after the news breaks all gas stations double their prices. So we are to believe that all of these gas stations got gas over night while we were sleeping and it was delivered at an inflated rate?? Stop with the price gouging!! Bunch of crooks. But I addressed yesterday the energy problem that we as a country stupidly brought onto ourselves. Now maybe someone will wake up and this country will get smart again.
